AlgPoW Conversation Notes
The Institute AlgPoW working group (Danielle, Shirley, Jo, Dave, Matt & Shelly) revised a previous categorization scheme to create the following top level topics:
 Linear functions
 Coordinate plane
 Interpreting graphs
 Inequalties
 System of equations/inequalities
 Higher polynomials (greater than second degree)
 Matrices
 Quadratic functions
 Exponential/Logarithmic functions
 Geometric applications
 Patterns/logic
The following searchwords were identified:
 intercept
 slope
 coordinate plane
 domain/range
 absolute value
 Pythagorean Theorem
 distance
 linear programming
 rational expression
 factoring
 radical
 conic sections
 direct/inverse variation
Other notes:
 order of operations, algebraic expressions, scientific notation, and integers should be covered in MidPoW
 rational expressions should be a major topic in Trig/Calc
 exponential functions and logarithmic functions should be separated for Trig/Calc
